In July, the celebrity power couple obtained a marriage license in Clark County, Nevada, three months after getting engaged for the second time. On August 20, Affleck, 50, and Lopez, 53, made their union extra official at a private affair attended by their friends and family.

The Gone Girl actor and the Let’s Get Loud singer were previously betrothed in the early 2000s before calling off their engagement and going their separate ways. Last spring, however, the former flames rekindled their romance for Bennifer 2.0.

“We did it. Love is beautiful. Love is kind. And it turns out love is patient. Twenty years patient,” Lopez wrote in her “On the JLo” newsletter soon after marrying Affleck in Vegas last month.

“Love is a great thing, maybe the best of things – and worth waiting for.”

Here’s everything we know about the Bennifer nuptials, part two.

Where did the wedding take place?

The couple’s second wedding was held at Affleck’s estate in Riceboro, Georgia – where they reportedly planned to marry after getting engaged for the first time in 2002.


According to People magazine, the Tender Bar star’s Southern home is an 35-hectare (87-acre) compound outside Savannah, which was decorated Saturday with a marquee, white chairs, dining tables and a white piano surrounded by dense foliage and elegant white floral arrangements. The wedding party also posed for photos at a nearby dock on the riverfront.

Who was there?

Also there were filmmaker Kevin Smith and wife Jennifer Schwalbach Smith; actor Jason Mewes and wife Jordan Monsanto; and actor Pia Miller and her husband, Hollywood talent agent Patrick Whitesell, according to People.
